I'm wondering what is going on with the location at 23rd and Iowa, the old Furr's location. It has been empty for several years. I noticed the grass is overgrown and the trees are all grown out. No one has touched that building, so I just wondered if the city has any planned usage for that building or the lot there on the corner?
As previously reported in the Journal-World, the national drug store chain CVS plans to open a store at the site in the second half of 2007. CVS will construct a new building. The Furr's building has been empty since 2002, when the restaurant closed after 19 years in business.
